Another Magazine - "Family and eroticism are rarely mentioned in the same breath, despite incest having a bit of a moment in pop culture last year. In her work, however, Swedish artist Amanda Moström brings these two loaded subjects together with humour and surprising tenderness. Her photographic series Don Joy sees the artist pose with family members in the style of famous, sexually-loaded photographs. In one image, Moström and her grandfather impersonate Anna Nicole Smith and J Howard Marshall, with the artist dressed in a white silk mini dress. In another similarly disquietening shot, she straddles her dad’s nude bum in homage to Tom of Finland’s iconic homoerotic pencil drawings."
The exhibition is accompanied by a small publication featuring an extended interview between Moström and Richard Francis.
